The Panther student Journalism Program gives students a wide variety of experiences relating to journalism and newspaper skills. The Panther is focused on both a print and online edition for the newspaper titled: The Seattle Prep Panther.
Students on the Panther staff also manage the Panther's social media accounts. The Panther is a great opportunity for students interested in developing a wide range of skills including graphic design, writing skills, photography, interviewing, and new journalism media.
Micah Richardson brings over ten years of journalism teaching experience as the advisor for the program. In the summer of 2015, Richardson received a fellowship from the American Society of News Educators to attend a week long summer institute for journalism educators at the University of Texas School of Journalism.

Ignite—Seattle Prep’s online journal of creative writing and visual arts—is committed to furthering the mission of Seattle Prep through fostering the development of the whole person.

Ignite's moderator, Jen Dotsey, holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and is at work on her first novel, a work of historical fiction. She works in both the English and Community Ministry departments at Seattle Prep.In the Fall, Ignite operates as a creative writing class in which students develop as writers of poetry, fiction, and personal essays; they also grow as readers, writers, and editors by workshopping one another's pieces.
In Spring, the Ignite focuses on production of the year's online literary magazine. Students work to solicit submissions; to read, view, critique and revise the submitted pieces; and to publicize the new edition.
Students of all grade levels and abilities are welcome to participate in either semester, or both.
